The unusually warm weather in March, up to 18-20C, got the garden plants off to an early start, but for some reason, spring flowering shrubs and trees are not budding yet.
Still, I saw today a flowering magnolia and forsythia shrubs are starting out too, slowly but surely.
I've find this cheerful forsythia shrub in a sunny place, protected by a building.
And guess what? Early, dwarf tulips are blooming as well.
